Unit 3 Book 1 Practice: Do Ex (on p.62-62) , and Section C (on p.71) III. Post-reading Activities A. Summary of the text My father has been dead for several years, but I think of him quite often. My father was severely crippled, but he never complained about it, and he never subjected to fate. He went to work in spite of bad weather and never missed a day. He never talked about himself as an object of pity nor did he show any envy of the more fortunate or able. Unable to engage in many activities, my father tried to participate in some way. Also in some things he participated through me, his only son. However, when I was young, I couldn't understand it and I was embarrassed to be seen with my father. After I have grown up, I think of often. He taught me the standard to judge people with "a good heart". In modern society, people are always involved in dealing with different kinds of relations, such as friendship, conjugal relation, and so on. These kinds of relations weave your life. Changes of one part will probably lead to total rearrangement of your whole life. In other words, you are closely related to your family that nurses you, your school that you learn knowledge, your community that you live in and even the country that gives your nationality. Nobody can say he can isolate from the society and live by himself. It’s outrageous! So everyone should communicate with others if you want to live socially. But ho can we our life happy and harmonious? One form of communication that has a positive influence on us is the act of deep caring. When words failed and nothing else seems to work, a simple, kind act of caring can change our lives, lift our spirits and gives us a model to follow—to live up for the rest of our lives. B.

Exercises Do Exercise III、IV、V、VI、IX D. Topics for further classroom discussion 1) What do you think a good heart is? For Reference: A “good heart” refers to the good nature of a person, which involves the aspects as follows: To begin with, he is kind with the people around him, thinking as much of others as of himself. Besides, he is honest in dealing with any affairs. He has a strong sense of Unit 3 Book 1 what is right and wrong. And best of all, he is ready to help when someone is in trouble or in need of his help. In our peacetime, having a good heart also involves much devotion to others. With a good heart, you don’t remain indifferent at the sight of others’ sufferings. You may offer all kinds of help to those in trouble or in danger. With a good heart, you can not tolerate the spread of bad social practices. You have the courage to do whatever is right. With a good heart, you give more thought to others than to yourself and find excellence in others. And still with a good heart, you give more to others than take from others. In sum, having a good heart not only adds joy to others’ life but also brings virtue to society. 2) What are the factors contributing to the cultivation of a good heart? Tips: Among the factors contributing to the cultivation of a good heart, three carry most weight. the family environment the company you keep your own refinement E. Assignments 1.

III. Text Analysis A. Text Structure Analysis The whole passage can be divided into four parts: The First Part (Paras. 1-2): Introduction Main Idea: An elderly man had collapsed on a downtown Brooklyn street corner and he repeatedly called for his son in the hospital. The Second Part (Paras. 3-8): Development Main Idea: A young Marine was sent to the hospital to accompany the elderly man until his death. The Third Part (Paras. 9-14): Highlight Main Idea: It turned out that the young Marine was not the elderly man’s real son. The Fourth Part (Para. 5): Conclusion Main Idea: It was a very human way that the wrong Marine had become the right son at the right time. B. Sentence Analysis 1. An elderly man had collapsed while crossing the street, ... (Para. 1) Paraphrase: An old man had fallen to the ground and lost consciousness while he was crossing the street. Please pay attention to the “while"-clause. The subject and the verb "be" can be omitted. Here in Unit 3 Book 1 the text "... while he was crossing the street" is shortened to ".... while crossing the street". Some other conjunctions indicating time or condition can also be used in this way. More Examples: 1) While discussing the matter, they started to argue in a very loud voice. 讨论这个问题时, 他们竟然高声争吵起来。 2) When young, he lived in a very poor mountain village in northwestern China. 年轻时, 他住在中国西北部一个十分贫穷的山村里。 3) 一旦完成, 这件工作对他们来说似乎太容易了。 As soon as finished, the job seemed too easy for them. 2. And he proved, ... that there are people who care what happens to their fellow men. (Para. 15) Paraphrase: And he showed, ... that there are people who are concerned with what happens to their fellow men. Notice that in the sentence "prove" is used as a link verb, which is usually followed by an adjective or a noun. In this use, "prove" means "show in the course of time, turn out to be". More Examples: 1) Perhaps this book will prove useful later. 也许这本书今后会有用。 2) On the long journey, he proved a most amusing companion. 在长途旅行中, 他显示出他是一位很有趣的旅伴。 This use of "prove" is different from the transitive use of this verb. Compare the following examples with the above sentences: 3) He has evidence that can prove his innocence. 他有证据能证明自己的清白。 4) They proved him to be guilty. 他们证明他有罪。 3. With that, the Marine turned and exited the hospital. Paraphrase: After saying that, the Marine turned round and went out of the hospital. with that: when that had been done 接着，于是，随即 More Examples: 1) With that, he left the room. 接着，他离开了房间。 2) 他略挥了一下手，然后就走了 He gave a little wave, and with that, he was gone.
